AMERICAN EXILE: Virtual screening and panel discussion
Monday, November 15 | 7:00 - 8:00 PM

Join KLRN for a special screening and panel discussion of AMERICAN EXILE, a brand new film from Latino Public Broadcasting.

Fifty years ago, brothers Valente and Manuel Valenzuela both volunteered and fought in Vietnam. They returned home decorated and disabled. Now approaching their 70s, they’ve received notices of deportation. Distraught and confused, the brothers were shocked to learn that they are not alone. Filmed over the course of seven years, AMERICAN EXILE is the story of two unlikely war heroes who are reluctantly transformed into veteran’s rights activists.
